Point of the story, to grow, you have to stretch and I've been doing a lot of stretching lately. I've been getting out of my comfort zone and making big decisions that will dictate a good portion of our future.
The first time I did this was in the fall of 2008 and Richard and I decided to buy the Russellville franchise of Rhea Lana's. What a FABULOUS adventure it has been! It stretches me a million times during sale season and a thousand other ways during the off season. It's good for me and I like it. (I know that's what they say about exercise, but I haven't ever got that)
Last month we decided to stretch a little bit more and buy another franchise.
BROKEN ARROW, OKLAHOMA, here we come!100,000 people live in Broken Arrow and it runs right into the wonderful city of Tulsa. It's a great market for our company. Although I fought the scariness of doing this out of my comfort zone, as I've stepped out and looked around and started the planning and thinking process, it is GOOD. I haven't done one of my events without the Lord's guidance and without my family's support. I couldn't. Not on my own.
I can't wait to see what God has in store for us. Hopefully many more friends and a ripped kind of faith.
